(de) wrote: This movie was far better than the last one. A well respected sequel the made up for what it came from.The main reason is the more realistic script. The last one just showed what the the characters would like in a different perspective. This one most showed a more developing story, with more interesting parts. Also the animation was also far better. Especially the opening title, very colorful and energetic. The characters were better developed, most likely between Twilight and Sunset. Which made Sunset Shimmer one of my favorite characters. Not to mention the last movie didn't really develop them, most likely rushing.The music was catchy and very well made. It felt as if the writers really put their all into it. Especially the ending climax, it was epic.The background characters were the best of the movie. That's the interesting thing about G4 of MLP, they know what the fandom loves about the show and what they do. That's what perfect about this franchise.So I still loved this movie, as it was better than the last one. But I don't think what came after was better.I'll look at The Friendship games later.

Having said that, the acting was pretty good and the makeup effects were gory, but the story was just well let's just say this movie is an even lower budget version of Hostel but for surgical students. Maybe OK for a viewing once it comes to HBO.. It'll be there soon...

Eugene Levy, Christopher Guest and Fred Willard shine here, but the cast is really good. Didn't think I would like this one much, but it was really good.

(ru) wrote: 'Blood and Bone' is one of my favorite iterations of a 'Man from nowhere' story, featuring a superluminal pace that absorbs the necessary - and only the necessary - story details into its furious, perfectly stylized action sequences.

(kr) wrote: There are very few things in a film that I reject outright and one is revisionist history, delivered by a flagrant hypocrite no less. In 1978, San Francisco Mayor George Moscone and City Supervisor Harvey Milk were assassinated by fellow City Supervisor Dan White. How can this film be made without one mention of Jim Jones and the 'Peoples Temple' (yes, Jim Jones notorious for the spiked 'Kool-Aid' mass murder that killed over 900 people and occurred 10 days before the assassination of Milk/Moscone) whom Milk and Moscone relied heavily on for local support and votes, which Moscone rewarded by appointing Jim Jones to the city of SF Housing Authority. Why is the fact that Milk rose to the rank of Lt. while serving in Korea never mentioned? Why is the fact that Milk actually worked on Barry Goldwater's Republican Pres campaign in 1964 before switching political affiliations omitted? Propaganda, pure and simple delivered by an actor who plays Milk as a caricature, not a character (think 'Coffee Tawlk') and it's tough to swallow dialogue regarding the greatness of the United States and its Constitution from an actor that exhibits a vocal and unabashed disrespect for both in private life. Gus Van Sant knows by now how to assemble the various components of film to make a whole but he and his writer fail everyone by cherry-picking history. Penn, Hirsch and Luna are ingratiating but James Franco acts well. This is no 'Best Picture', this is an insult to anyone who has even a casual interest in US political history. If California is determined to push a tolerance agenda to the voters in their state in movie form, they may want to consider different role models.

Bob Fosse created a brilliant masterpiece, but it was released in bad timing because when it came out, another heavy came into full effect, "The Godfather." If you never seen it yet, you don'y know what you're missing. For those who love high energy films like "Moulin Rouge" or "Chicago", then this type of movie might be your cup of tea. It will surely leave you awestruck for a very long time.
